Sorry - missed this thread earlier.
Great stuff and good to see the CA/Alaska portion you're travelling as we'll be hitting that shortly.
I'm a 1/2hr from Bellingham and I see your dates around the 8th but not sure of your Ferry*3
7-08 Ferry to Bellingham WA
before you hit Seattle (1hr from us)
Love to have you stay here for some Irish hospitality and a home-cooked meal (may come with a drink or two and some 'tarts').
We're (+3 kids + trailer behind Landcruiser 80) setting off in Sept to Alaska -> Mexico -> Central -> South America -> Africa -> Europe -> Ireland - approx 1yr, 30K miles and would like to see your setup, get some advice on equipment etc.
We've been R&Ding for some time (need to get a page up here) and have had several overlanders stay with us on their travels up North (from South America), the last few months (Feliz, Simone, Neil, Milan + Lizzybus). All have done or still exploring Alaska recently.
The Lizzybus folks (Jayne/David) should be here (120K miles, 5 yrs on road in LR) - FB
Also doing a BBQ 4x4 get-together on the 12th (Sat) July if anyone is around (general invite) - just "book up" here and info here (+swap truck parts)
Our upcoming website
All the best

Your trip sounds incredible. It is quite an endeavor to prepare for such a monumental journey. I wish you the best of luck in your travels. Troy and I hit the dock in Bellingham at 8:00 am on the 11th. I really appreciate the offer. We've had several folks that have been kind enough to make a similar offer. Because of our schedule we only have one day to see Seattle, and that is the 11th. So unfortunately we aren't able to stick around up north for long. If you have time to meet for breakfast on Friday, we would be happy to get together. Then we'll head into town from there. It's Troy's only chance to check out the town, and there is plenty to see. Let me know if breakfast would work.
